allegations surfaced from another former student. he now exercises no public ministry and lives under close supervision at the jesuit infirmary. his restrictions are reviewed annually. that jesuit infirmary is the same los gatos facility where a jesuit priest gerald lindner was beaten in 2010 by will lynch who accused that priest of molesting him and his brother in the mid 1970s. the santa clara district attorney's office can no longer prosecute this particular case criminally because the statute of limitations has run out. still, the bellarmine alum reportedly came forward to leaders at his alma mater to encourage other victims to come forward. grable is quoted in a statement as saying at each step i was met with apology, concern, caring, and willingness to help. they, the jesuits support my desire to send this letter as an expression of my care and my concern for my classmates who might have had similar painful experiences. grable did not return our call for comment.
5:01pm
